Antique Gold Tipped Umbrella Handle Cane Walking Stick
Nicely engraved octagonal gold tip on wood umbrella handle. The metal is unmarked but tests out at 12k gold (or possibly very heavily plated 14k). We tested it alongside a known, marked, rolled gold (gold filled) piece and also compared it with a known, marked 14k gold item. The 14k test acid did not completely dissolve the mark but more so than the known 14k item.
The 10k test acid had no reaction at all while it completely dissolved the rolled gold sample. For this reason, we believe this item is 12K gold, or it is very heavily plated, enough to withstand the 10k acid test and to not be completely dissolved with 14k acid. The tip is firmly fixed to the wooden shaft and is likely packed with clay material inside as is typical of Victorian cane toppers. The entire handle is about 1.8 oz.
The face of it is about 3/4 across. THANKS FOR VIEWING OUR LISTING!We use plenty of quality packing materials so that your item(s) will arrive in the same condition as they left our shop.
